High-profile visitors that attended the White House state dinner in Washington, DC, on Wednesday included Angelina Jolie. The star attended the special event organised for South Korean President Yoon Suk Yeol and his wife Kim Keon Hee with her son Maddox, 21.
In a white dress and a jacket that matched it, Angelina made a statement. Her son, however, went for a black suit. After studying biochemistry at Yonsei University in Seoul, Maddox, who the actor adopted from Cambodia in 2002, is said to be familiar with South Korea.
To send her kid off to college in August 2019, Angelina took a plane to South Korea. The Covid-19 epidemic, however, caused Maddox to switch from attending in-person classes to online learning since it interrupted his academics. According to Angelina, who had discussed her son’s schooling in an interview with Extra that year, he returned to his family’s Los Angeles home in March 2020. With her ex-husband, actor Brad Pitt, Angelina has six kids: twins Vivienne and Knox, Zahara and Shiloh, as well as boys Maddox and Pax.
Asian-American connections are significant to Angelina’s family, a source told People regarding the actress’ most recent visit to the White House. For many years, she and the kids have maintained tight relationships with the area, especially South Korea. Maddox attended Yonsei University in Seoul to study. In the past 20 years, Angelina has made several trips to South Korea as an artist and for her work advocating for refugees. Honoured to be invited to this state dinner are Angelina and Maddox.
The Olympic snowboarder from the United States, Chloe Kim, was among the other well-known people present at the recent White House dinner. US President Joe Biden and his wife Jill Biden greeted Yoon Suk Yeol and his wife Kim Keon Hee on a red carpet as the majority of visitors entered through the garden. The administration’s second state dinner was planned by the first lady, who enlisted Korean American celebrity chef Edward Lee to create a cuisine with a Korean influence.
